Not our usual, but a good effort
Adapt and Overcome, pandemic or no, that’s what we do.
As we discussed at the May Post meeting and also in our last newsletter, we were not able to conduct our usual Memorial Day “Buddy Poppy” drive at the local supermarkets and instead ran a “virtual” drive via internet and social media. Supporters were asked via Facebook, MyEdmondsNews and the Beacon newspapers to donate on line through a link provided in print ads and articles. We very much appreciate the support of our local press and the efforts of members to spread the word on social media. The result is a total of over $ 8,000 for our Relief Fund as we go to press. No doubt we are all looking forward to getting out in public again on Veterans Day. In the meantime, we are considering an interim drive to fill in the shortage.
